What’s the weather like in Malta in March?
Lying in the Mediterranean between Sicily and North Africa, Malta enjoys some of the best weather in Europe. As spring takes hold things get nice and warm in March, while the amount of rain reduces. If it does rain, it’s usually in short downpours.
Breezes from the Mediterranean Sea will keep things cool on your Malta holidays, with the ocean at its coolest in March. As it’s quite flat and exposed, Malta can be fairly windy at times, and the weather is generally the same across the country. Hot winds can occasionally blow over from Africa, which pushes temperatures up.
The average high temperature in Malta during March is 18ºC, perfectly warm enough to relax on the beach. You should pack some warmer clothes for the evenings as well as your beach gear though, as temperatures averagely drop to 10ºC. The average sea temperature’s 16ºC, while humidity’s low and generally ranges from around 60-95%. Average rainfall’s 37mm over the course of nine rainy days.
In March you can expect 12 hours of daylight with seven hours of sunshine each day and UV levels will be moderate. Sunset’s just before 6pm at the beginning of March, this is pushed back to 7.20pm towards the end of the month when daylight saving starts.
